Today Robyn talks with Eddie Levine, President of Wholesale Breakthrough, to discover how he’s built an $8M eCommerce company in just 4 years, continuing this series on different methods of selling. Robyn is bringing fantastic interviews with e-commerce sellers who have business models that are very different from hers – but work very well. Robyn opens the playing field by showing that there is more than one way to skin a cat and be successful. 

Eddie Levine is the President and co-founder of Wholesale Breakthrough, the consulting arm of a multi-million-dollar eCommerce business.  Eddie started the business in 2012 and together with his business partner Greg, they operate from two large warehouses in Chicago, Illinois.  Eddie’s vision for success revolved around offering two distinct benefits.  First, the company operates on nearly 30 channels worldwide, which results in greater coverage and extraordinary sales volumes for their vendors.  They also act as a distributor when selling B2B or to the major retailers who either cannot or will not buy from the manufacturer directly.  Second, the company offers brand management and enforcement services which include listing creation, optimization, advertising, and IP/seller enforcement.

As an extremely active member of the eCommerce community, Eddie travels worldwide to dozens of trade shows and industry events every year.  He has participated as a speaker on several podcasts and at many seller conferences including the ASD Trade Shows, Retail Global, and Global Sources.

Eddie carries over 15 years of combined eCommerce and logistics experience, having worked for several Fortune 500 corporations.  He attended the University of Kansas and currently resides in the northern Chicago suburbs.  Eddie volunteers as the Director of Operations for the 501c3 military organization Laughs for the Troops, works with 4 local high school entrepreneurship classes as a student coach / mentor, and judges regional and national competitions for DECA Inc., the nationwide youth business program.

Today Robyn talks about changing the tag line from “Giving you actionable advice for your ecommerce business”, to “Empowering profitable and professional ecommerce sellers”. Robyn discusses how implementing the actionable advice over time is what sustains a profitable and professional business, and how to deal with the “imposter syndrome” that we all go through as entrepreneurs. The reoccurring thought of, “Am I a real business?” and the shock when we find out, as Robyn did, that you’re no longer the person sitting on the floor peeling off the Walmart stickers, but you are, in fact, a successful business owner – and the hard work you’ve done, and continue to do, deserves praise and respect – primarily from yourself.

Robyn also talks about how much your business costs to run, and what to do to safeguard yourself if you have an emergency that changes the way you need to do business for a time. Her video, “Do You Know How Much Your Business Costs To Run” (the link is below) is a must see in order to really strategically plan for the safety and profitability of your business long term.

Robyn also mentions her upcoming Amazon Academy offering, “Systems To Scale” which will teach you how to implement those systems necessary to move your business to the next level – look for more information on that in the next few episodes.

Do you know how much your business costs to run?

Greg Murphy never had trouble selling his textbooks when the college semester ended. The Wright State graduate has turned that skill into a book business that generates nearly $1 million a year and today Greg is here with Robyn to talk about the incredible profit to be made selling books on Amazon.

Greg buys books by the truckload, sorts them at his warehouse on in Dayton, Ohio and sells them online to Amazon and wholesalers like Half-Price Books. If the book is too beat up to be sold then he offers them at a deep discount at his warehouse to the public before recycling them. Greg and Robyn discuss the systems and processes Greg needed to establish to move the volume of books he sells every month. As Greg said, “Sourcing the books is the easy part. The systems to move them efficiently is the hard part.” So Greg spends the majority of his time refining current processes and creating new processes to make his business even more streamlined and profitable.  There is money to be made in book selling – there isn’t another category that offers such high margins, and as Greg hates shopping, retail arbitrage is out for him!

Greg is offering “Ask Me Anything” workshops and if you are interested in starting a business that will run itself – sign up for the free workshops at the link below.

What does summer really mean?  Yes, it’s beach balls, vacations, no school, and more time with your children, but it’s also getting ready for Q4, taking stock of your inventory, business, and examining the seasonal items that you can stock up on. Robyn discusses retail arbitrage with Target and their enforcement of their “No Reseller” policy and when to watch for the national clearance sales so you can make those great summer buying decisions that will support you profitably through the rest of the year and net you a fantastic Q4.

It’s really busy from September to December so, while there are things you need to concentrate on in summer for your business, it’s really important that you take a break as well. There are some fantastic conferences this summer that you may want to put on your calendar – ASD is in July in Vegas and Robyn will be there!

Is private label right for you? Today Robyn talks about how she handles private label, why you shouldn’t start out doing private label, and the best way to go about starting your own private label.  Robyn goes over the wholesale/relabel private label method vs building your own product from scratch.

Robyn talks about talking to a United States company and asking them to white label their products for you. Trader Joe’s grocery store is a great example of how white labeling can be very effective but also that you need to understand the liability and safety issues involved with private labeling. Robyn breaks down the 5 things you need to have in line in order to start private labeling:

  1. Have some basic business experience.
  2. Have about 5 to 10 thousand dollars to invest.
  3. You need to have persistence over time.
  4. Being willing to take a calculated risk.
  5. Commitment to excellence.

Robyn also takes a deep dive in to the legal ramifications of private labeling and she’s also offering a webinar about this very thing on May 31, 2016. The links to register for this webinar are below, and if you’re thinking of private labeling, this is a must attend event!

“In 2015, Fulfillment by Amazon volumes, growth rates, and inventory levels were very high. As a result, the fulfillment centers were very full in November and December. This fullness was driven in part by FBA inventory that didn’t sell until well into 2016. To avoid potential capacity constraints during the 2016 holiday season, Amazon is accelerating the expansion of f their fulfillment capacity and are changing our FBA fee structure to encourage all sellers to send in and store products in November and December that are likely to sell by the end of 2016. To give you time to plan for these changes, they will begin to take effect on October 1, 2016.”

Today Robyn takes a deep dive in to the fee changes Amazon just announced and how you can plan for your Q4 so you’re not stuck with excess inventory, more in long term storage fees, and ultimately lose money on your sales.

Are you thinking about importing your Amazon products from another country? Do you know all the logistics involved with importing? Today Robyn talks with Jennifer Moser of Think Cascadia and Cascadia Seller Solutions about all things importing and what you need to do to make certain that your business is ready to handle all the customs requirements, import fees, and meeting Amazons requirements. Robyn and Jennifer talk about how important it is to have a customs broker, and what you can and cannot do when you start importing.

They also cover when you should start thinking about Q4 when it comes to importing your Q4 products. Amazon starts thinking about Q4 in January! And so should you! You never know when a shipment will be held up in customs and you never want to run in to a situation where you’re stuck holding your Q4 inventory until next year because you couldn’t get your items in to Amazon on time.

Jennifer is an experienced professional in the import trade and logistics world, having worked for Amazon’s Trade Compliance team as a Global Trade Manager as well as managing the Product Safety team. Jennifer supports sellers with determining the correct HTS (Harmonized Tariff Schedule) code for their product, achieving competitive freight rates for ocean and air, and experience in regulatory compliance and product testing.

Robyn takes you through the steps setting a series of small goals, with reasonable steps, that will allow you to reach your BIG goals.

First thing - write down the goals you have already met - no matter how small - or how small it seems to you. Write it down and move from there. Setting the reasonable, reachable goals helps you avoid discouragement and move strongly.

Robyn talks about the Best From The Nest calculator that will help you reach your goal by calculating the amount of money you need to manage to get the profit you need to reach your goals. Knowing how much you need to spend (or not spend), calculate the ROI on each item, and how much help you need to meet your objectives.

Robyn takes you through several steps of goal planning, and covers the pitfalls that you may face in setting your goal planning calendar and how to overcome them and how to manage life, children, faith in harmony with your goals. Robyn wants to help set you up to win and if you email action plan to Robyn she will evaluate it and give you actionable advice. This is for all listeners - not just members of the Academy or Institute.

Elizabeth Harding was selling on Amazon off and on for years and finally decided to dive into selling full time. After the first time she  knew she needed an accounting solution because, as she says, “I do.not.do.math”. Elizabeth signed up for InventoryLab and loved what she saw so she decided to help out on Facebook and answer questions just for fun and before long she was on the payroll.

Today Robyn and Elizabeth discuss why you need a solid accounting and tracking practices in your ecommerce business. Too often sellers go into the ecommerce business and not realize that it is a business and that you need to plan for taxes, insurance, and have a proper business structure to safeguard what you have worked so hard to build. They also discuss hiring practices and why it’s so critical to have systems in place to hire the right people for your business. With ideas like the “easter egg” in the job posting, to the unusual interview questions that give you insight - Robyn takes you through everything you need to know in this actionable conversation with Elizabeth.

Today Robyn welcomes Emily Murray from Cascadia Seller Solutions. Emily, after two separate stints at Amazon.com: once for 2 years in the late 90’s as the young company was just getting established, and again more recently from 2011-2014, Emily joined Cascadia Seller Solutions, a consulting firm providing service and solutions to small to medium sized enterprises who need help protecting and building their brand on Amazon.

 For everything there is a season. Today Robyn talks about how your business leaves a legacy for the people in your lives, your community, and the world at large. Do you worry sometimes that you’re taking time away from volunteer activities, or other charitable works you’ve done in the past. Give yourself a break and know that spending your time and effort in building your business will give you a greater ability to give back in the future – and to not feel guilty for the shift in your priorities because this is a journey, and you move through various seasons in your life all the time.

Robyn takes a deep dive in to discovering the different ways to leave a legacy and the steps you need to take to build your legacy. Reading books, investing in your education, finding your why and getting clear on the life you want and then building the business that will help you attain that life.

 A kid we can all relate to:

 Guarding your product quality, keeping your products authentic, avoiding returns, and the repackaging issue that can cause you problems on Amazon are the top of today’s action packed, actionable episode. Robyn also discusses how to take care of your biggest customer – Amazon – and how to be customer obsessed so that your biggest customer is happy – and that makes Amazons customer base happy, the people who are buying your products.
